The introduction of the MV-1 DX changed the market for wheelchair accessible vehicles, and the competition has been trying to catch up ever since. The MV-1 DX is the transportation solution that thousands have trusted as their personal accessibility solution. It is perfect for the private consumer who needs a safe, durable, and thoughtfully-designed vehicle.
MV-1 DX Features
Unlike the MV-1 SE, the MV-1 DX Deluxe Edition features a two-stage power telescoping ramp with one-touch electronic control. The MV-1 DX also has a standard audio system with an AM/FM radio with CD/MP3 capability, an auxiliary input jack, a clock, and an antenna. This model also includes an interior engine side dash mat with sound absorbing material, a low open center console, cruise control, a power door lock key fob, and industry standard window tint. The MV-1 DX comes in Arctic White, Sterling Silver, and Jet Black.
MV-1 DX Accessibility
The MV-1 is comfortable to enter and exit with a 56-in. high and 36-in. extra wide loading door, a floor-to-ceiling height of nearly five feet, and seating for up to five passengers. For the driver’s convenience, this model comes with cruise control and the Driver Center Console Package. The MV-1 DX has 17-in. steel wheels with full wheel cover, and a Ford 4.6-liter 2V EFI V8 gasoline engine, that boasts 248 horsepower and 294 kb-ft of torque, taking its passengers wherever they need to go.
MV-1 DX Technology
The MV-1 DX has several optional features. These include a jump seat behind the driver’s seat, a Dedicated Compressed Natural Gas engine, and 17-in. aluminum wheels with center caps. An upgrade to Enhanced Radio is available, which adds DVD capability, a rear backup camera, a 7-in. touch screen and controls, menu select, Bluetooth capability, and Sirius Satellite Radio with tuner. A Navigation system is also available. Medium window tint comes with the Enhanced Radio audio system and is available as an independent upgrade.
